Each model is accompanied by a short description of the project as well as the methods and materials used to create the model. This project was carried out at the Institute of Construction and Design Principles (KOEN) at the Technical University of Graz. The institute, which has its focus primarily on teaching architecture to first year students, was founded in 2013.

The interrelationship between the design and construction aspects of architecture are an integral part of the institute’s teaching principles as well as the focus of its research projects. Furthermore, the Institute is in charge of the faculties model building workshop and specialised courses within that field.
This publication is part of an ongoing research project looking into the possibilities, as well as the relevance of model making within contemporary architectural practice and the teaching thereof. The models are not to be seen as exact replicas of the original designs, but try to reconstruct the basic idea of the former architects and to present the concept of the selected projects. The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of the same name, in which all architectural models are explained in more detail by means of photos and short texts.
